Hi Sum, normally a certificate is associated with only one Common Name (CN), which is the FQDN or ip address of the host. Unless you have a cert that supports multiple sites, like a wildcard certificate, a cert would work fine with only one VIP.

the ACE would not have a problem using the same certificate.

However, your client browser might complain that the certificate does not match the server name.

Could you clarify what is not working ?

Do you have a sniffer trace ?
